|What Students Learn:
Maintenance work involves hoisting or lifting and moving machines, and other heavy loads. A new machine may have to be moved in, and installed on its foundation; a broken machine may have to be hoisted and taken to the maintenance area for repair. For such work, trades people will need hoisting equipment, plus certain accessories, such as rope and chain slings. Therefore, it is important for trainees to be familiar with the common types of hoisting equipment and slings.
In maintenance work, you will often have to remove parts, such as gears and bearings, from an assembly. Pullers are very useful tools for such purposes. The commonly used pullers are of the jaw and push types.
